Foo Fighters frontman and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee (as a member of Nirvana), Dave Grohl is set to host and produce a documentary show on HBO, which is expected to premiere later this year, according to Rolling Stone.

The documentary is based on Grohl’s biography This Is a Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl, and among the features expected in the documentary includes the musician visiting studios around the world (which includes California studio Rancho De La Luna), as well as interviews from other artists including Ian MacKaye of Fugazi, as well as fellow Rock Hall inductees such as Eagles’ Joe Walsh and Heart’s Nancy Wilson. It was built around another documentary titled Sound City, which was released in 2013, focusing on the Los Angeles studio of the same name, and was also directed and produced by Grohl.

No word yet on a release date, and the documentary is still untitled.

In other music news, the California Supreme Court has given a ruling over a $3.75 million life insurance policy, belonging to Four Seasons singer Frankie Valli and his ex-wife. It was ruled that because the policy was purchased while in marriage, Randy Valli was entitled to the entire property that was once resided by both her and Frankie. Also, the policy was community property, as household funds from a joint checking account were used to buy and maintain it. The couple have been married for twenty years, before separating in 2004.

Frankie Valli is the lead singer of the Four Seasons, whose rose to fame in the 1960 with hits including “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Sherry”, and the chart-topper “Rag Doll.”
